Computer to TV

With the help of my computer savvy son, I finally figured out how to hook up my computer to our TV using a Belkin HDMI to DVI video cable, mini-DVI to DVI adapter, and an audio cable. I wanted to be able to watch the movies I make on the large screen. I just so happened to have an Adam Lambert video playing when I took the photo. The "genius" at the Apple store assured me I would have no problem hooking up the cables. Even the guy at Micro Center said it was a breeze. They always seem to leave out a critical piece of information like you have to go into your preferences and set your computer to "mirror". Good thing my son is home for the summer! Now I can show slideshows and my iMovies that I have created on our TV.
